Shipping container v. Storage containers
All our 20ft and 40ft units are shipping containers for sale. They are perfect for static storage as well as shipping. Our shipping containers for sale are either cargoworthy or the latest IICL criteria and fitted with an up to date CSC plate. Our storage containers for sale are watertight and structurally sound.
Second hand containers v. New containers
Second hand shipping containers for storage are 10-15 years old. They have come to the end of their shipping life but are perfect for static storage. They are repaired to a water tight and structurally sound standard. They will have their original paintwork with some surface rust, however they should last another 10 more years, at least, as a site store (a little maintenance may be required over that time). Please note we are unable to guarantee the life span of a shipping container for sale. We do however; guarantee that our containers are water tight and structurally sound when delivered to your premises.
All Billie Box used containers are less than 15 years old, and mostly just 10 to 12 years old. Older containers have highly reduced lifespans due to the effects of sea salt damage. We therefore do not recommend them.
New containers for sale are generally manufactured in China and in order to keep the price affordable our shippers use them for transporting a cargo into the UK. So we offer a ‘Once used’ container for sale. This type of container may have the odd dent or scratch at the time of delivery, but will definitely look tidier than a second hand container. Again these containers will be watertight.
